Let’s be honest, We Are Your Friends flopped tremendously at the box office. Sadly, not even Zac Efron could have saved it. In spite of all this, The CW is prepared to show the world that dance music has a rightful place on mainstream television.

The network has purchased The Drop, an EDM drama set in Miami that follows a DJ who finds a talented up-and-coming female African-Americans to mentor. Females and African-Americans are a rarity within the EDM industry and this show strives to speak to the larger issues involving race and gender.

The series is scripted by Kyle Jarrow and directed by RJ Cutler, with Steve Angello being listed as an executive music producer.

Hopefully the new series will find great success.
